Ivo Sieber also hoped that in the time ahead, the two sides will cooperate on education and sustainable urban development, banking and finance, startup support, among others.

Acceding to the ambassador’s proposal on holding commemorating events, Chung affirmed that Hanoi city is always willing to cooperate with the Swiss embassy to organize activities to mark the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries. Hanoi will participate in culinary demonstration and cultural performances to be held by the embassy.
